Welcome to April ...

 We are thrilled to announce we will be hosting a number of Cyber Crop weekends for you this year.  Each one will have three fun challenges, games and wonderful prizes!  Our first Cyber Crop will be held on 8/9/10 of April with a week to get your entries in to us.  So hope you can come join in with us!! 


This year we are making some changes to our challenges which I hope you will all enjoy.  During 2022 our inspiration is coming to you from ART ROOMS (aka store window displays). Just bear in mind that these are actual window displays, mostly behind glass, so the images may not be as clear and crisp as our previous artwork images.

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – it may be the colours, or the overall style or perhaps there is a specific item you see that you can replicate on your page.  Maybe you like a background pattern or a shape in the display or want to use photos that match the theme.  We’d love to hear what jumped out at you!

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
Used the bright pink and green from the shop front inspiration and added a few columns! The added netting represents the diamond shapes.
Tulum, Mexica trip 2006.

Karen Guy (Australia)
I had fun with this one, inspired by the colours, shapes and fibres… Used photos I had from the Warwick Jumper’s and Jazz festival!!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I made a page for my travel journal. I used lots of pink, a mix of textures and patterns, and pops of neon pink and lime green.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
Inspired by the lime green and bright pink and use of lines.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I immediately saw huge letters when I saw this display and as I had a few thought what better time to use them. Ran with the colours of pink, blue and lime and added large blocks of patterned paper to replicate the columns.

Our monthly prize winner is selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, you just have to be in it to win it!

April prize

 Please upload your entries directly to the monthly album in our Facebook public group (ARTastic challenges) by midnight on the last day of the month - please remember we are an Australian based challenge so do check your day and time.  All entries must be new for this challenge and the original work of the entrant.  You may combine entries with a sketch challenge only.
